Character Creation

Garrick Luminary, 90 years old (middle age), a gnome bard who subconsciously puts himself in a fatherly role of those around him — offering advice on how they can improve themselves and their situation, trying to deescalate situations, etc. Sample quote: "Now hold on there, buster. I get that a sweltering day like this is enough to make anyone wanna draw steel, but why don't we sit down over some lemonade instead and work this out like adults?" His taunts tend to take a "you should be ashamed of your behavior" approach.
